How to Make Glowing Water
- Nontoxic yellow highlighters
Making glow water is simple! All you need are non-toxic yellow highlighters and water. You can find 2-packs of jumbo highlighters at Target for under $1.00. Pop the back off of the marker and pull out the ink soaked felt that is inside. Then run the felt under a small stream of water with a bowl underneath to catch it. I used roughly 6 cups of water per highlighter and ended up with insanely bright glow water, too!
Yellow highlighters make such a BRIGHT glowing water, and there are so many fun ways to use this water in play. Visit our glowing play collection for tons of ideas.
I tried to make glow water using every other color highlighter that I had on hand, and none of them glowed. I was so disappointed, as some of the highlighters would glow in the black light when you used them to write, but then the water would not glow.
